Hipsters rejoice: New radio made to look old
When it comes to the youth of today, what is old is new again - with a few updates. Hit songs like "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis express to kids how cool it is to dress in clothes that could have come straight out of Mr. Rogers' closet, while hipsters have also made it hip to use typewriters and take photos of their food.
Freshness magazine reports many fans will be thrilled to learn that Furni has recently come up with a new stereo system that is meant to look vintage. The Kendall Bluetooth Speaker resembles old-fashioned, portable, wooden stereos and is made out of a solid walnut case and an acrylic speaker grill. Despite its throw back style, the system allows fans to connect their iPhones, iPods or other Wi-Fi MP3 players to deliver the latest tunes in perfect clarity. In fact, Furni makes it even easier for users to connect - they can simply download the free app that turns the speaker into an alarm clock.
According to Ubergizmo, the speaker system, which is set to be released in April, will cost interested buyers a cool $188.
